I had abdominal surgery 5 years ago because of intestinal ileus. Now test has shown that I have intestinal adhesion. I experience frequent abdominal pain throughout the day. I read that if I have more surgery to correct adhesion, this will cause even more adhesion in the future. So I dont want surgery to correct the problem.

I read that there are medications to treat intestinal adhesion. What are they ? How effective are they ? I desperately need to seek them out. Please help me out. Thank you..
